Lighte the dark part a bit more and try to get more details (sky) from the raw files.

6/10, entirly subjective though, exposure is fine, although I can tell even from this version you pushed it to the heavens to get that detail. it draws you in, but there's nothing to be drawn into in the end. Kind of annoying;P

@cc143 was a non edited snapshot after leaving the lab on a blackberry q10.

Not to be rude, but why post it here then if it was just a mediocre snapshot? I mean don’t you want feedback on some work you actually gave some thought into and tried to make the best of. I may take 50

images and maybe just two out of those reach a point or are good enough that I post them somwhere or print them. 

 

At least in my mind this thread is to post some images you take that you have thought about and want some constructive feedback on how to improve the image, or at least discuss why it turned out how it did or what te thought process where if you planned to go for a certain look. I may be wrong but it seems like you went all defensive when you got some feedback on the shot. Just my thoughts.

I got the impression from what you wrote that you boosted the shadows, my mistake. The criticism still stands though, it wan't an image quality thing but more of a compositional criticism.

This was taken with my old Nikon D2X. You cannot tell, but there was an entire city in the background...

Shot with the B/W mode IIRC.

8/10 Looks good, really captures the atmosphere pretty well. Here's a shot I took on a trip in NYC recently trying out my new 35mm f2

I'd have pulled back a bit more, show the whole van in its decrepit glory, and the rotted streets surrounding it.

There are some real challenges in photography:

Product,

concert

and

underwater

 

converting this to monochrome really brings out the sense of an alien environment. Superb.

filming photographing any event is not easy. people move randomly. not like filming something with proper script and actors who can be told wht to do. i can post original color version later but i convert to black white because the area was not very colorful and water was not crystal clear. trying to get lens to focus on what you want is not easy lifting the camera to your face and trying to look at the back LCD screen while trying to keep still in the water.

I know, I was a concert photographer for several years. Specifically metal and hardcore. Talk about motion (and mosh pits, and stage dives and riots)

The monochrome image you posted is spot on, I think the original colour would lose some of the impact of the image. You did a bang-up job, extremely well done. More please.

I also like how it's in black and white. It makes the fish almost ghost-like.

Here's mine, I flicked some water on the flowers as I was watering them.

I have also posted this on imgur, just in case anyone comes across it there and thinks I stole it.

I love the idea of using water droplets in photography. It is a super simple and easy way to take a good photo and make it great. But, I think your photo is too busy. It doesn't draw my eye to the focal point and there a too much going on in the blurred out the foreground. Try to give me a subject to look at in the photo.

 

Here was my 4th of July picture using water droplets and backlighting to put the flag inside the drops. This was all done in camera.

I really like how you got the flag in the droplets in camera. That picture also screams AMERICA! (In a good way)

This picture has much better subject separation, other than maybe that stick behind the dragon fly.

Ok, admit it, just off camera were two giant sharks with dinner forks at the ready....

I'll do a lot of things, but open areas like that give me chills...

Ah, awesome photoshop job :)

Totally in love with all things Italian, drove their wonderful cars for many years (and paid the repair bills for an equally long time), learned how to cook their dishes, etc etc etc.

Amazing place...simply amazing.

I understand, I was just commenting on the part where your pic was taken.

This is less of a pic and more of a snapshot, but it's difficult to get a pic of Argo standing still....

I really like ^^^ the photo. Great contrast, good lighting and detail. My only critique is the front claw being out of frame and the eye is out of focus. Great job!

The photo is quite vivid and I really enjoy the colors. In some ways seems a little overwhelming but that may just be me.

Love the colours of the grass and the contrast with the road, clouds looks nice too. Maybe Monochrome would have given a nice effect too.
